Coal was discovered on Cape Breton, in Nova Scotia, in the 1800s. To haul their product, the coal companies constructed a rail line to the Port of Sydney. However, the port froze over during the harsh winters. Thus, an extension was constructed to the all weather port of Louisbourg. Thus was born “The Sydney & Louisburg Railway”. Note that the line anglicized the name of the port. With plentiful coal and lots of good second hand locomotives, the line remained in steam long after most other railroads went to diesel power. We’ll see vintage action from rare film with accurate sound used throughout.

    Wow….. a steam lover’s delight. Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia Canada….. once a coal producer giant. The footage of this video is old and therefore the quality is not to today’s standard, but don’t let that discourage you as it is well worth seeing. Watching the ancient steamers working hard is a delight to see. And you will not find anything like it any where else. This video is definitely a favorite in my home.
